Litigation Manager

About Diana Megalla, Litigation Manager

New Jersey divorce attorney Diana Megalla had experience in civil and commercial litigation, but she wanted to help people rather than just corporations.

“Helping corporations make more money will never be as fulfilling as helping individuals resolve problems in their daily lives,” said Ms. Megalla.

She left those areas for family law so that she could have more client contact and be able to help people in need and those facing big decisions in their lives.

Ms. Megalla certainly still draws upon her more corporate experience, however, and uses skills like negotiation and even her earlier background in sales to help practice family law.

“I have handled many family cases where clients have advised me that this was the smoothest and fastest manner that the case could have gone,” said Ms. Megalla. “I understand and appreciate that when you come to me, you are experiencing one of the most difficult times in your life, and I want to ensure that the process is the most bearable it can be given the circumstances.”

Real-Life Experiences
Reviews from Our Past Clients
  • “It took years for me to come to a decision to end my marriage. I sought a law firm that is focused and prepared for trial if need be, and seeks to give me the best outcome possible. Cordell and Cordell has performed very well and is very supportive during this difficult time. I have full confidence in my representation and recommend them.”
    – Mason B.
  • “Divorce is hard enough without trying to find a Lawyer who will truly work for you. I had several conversations with Lawyers that seemed only interested in winning somehow. No one wins in a divorce. I should have went to Cordell & Cordell first so I would have avoided a lot of headaches. I met a group of people that genuinely care for you.”
    – Mark L.
